This rich, full-bodied Chardonnay produced by stellar Israeli winery Clos de Gat was fermented and aged in French oak for twelve months, resulting in flavours of grilled peach and honey. There's a refreshing citrusy finish and great balance which makes this so much more than a one-glass wonder. A pretty perfect match for roast chicken.

Buy this if...you have a Chardonnay fetish.

Opulent toasty Chardonnay with a hint of sticky pastries. If you've got a Chardonnay bucket list, please stop here...

The Producer

Clos de Gat is situated in foothills of the Judean Mountains, bordering Israel's biblical Ayalon Valley. An ancient 'gat' (Hebrew for winepress), pre-dating the Roman period, is located in the grounds of the modern winery, set in the heart of the Clos de Gat vineyards, covering 19 hectares. After months of painstaking analysis of diverse plots of land, owner Eyal Rotem planted a selection of noble grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Chardonnay, with small, experimental amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.

The Winemaker

Eyal Rotem is the eponymous owner, viticulturalist and winemaker who concentrates on carefully matched grape varieties to specific plots, low yields, natural yeasts and subtle use of oak to bring out the best in the wines. The red wines are made using both open and closed stainless steel, temperature controlled fermentation tanks. After barrel ageing the wines are transferred to settling tanks for several weeks prior to being bottled unfiltered.

The Region

The regions' rolling hills and valley, with Jerusalem nestling in the middle, are often likened to the Tuscan hills, and have supported grapevine cultivation for thousands of years. The combination of thin topsoil on limestone-bedrock, coupled with an ideal micro-climate makes it possible to grow grapes of outstanding quality. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot, sunny days and the higher altitude allows for fresher styles.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breast Wrapped in Pancetta

Plump for a ripe, fruity white such as Israeli Chardonnay to contrast with the salty tang that the pancetta and cheese bring to the dish.

Cauliflower Steaks with Olive and Herb

Vegan, nutritious and delicious. Especially with this Mediterranean salsa. Impressive enough to be the focal point of the meal, or will pair beautifully with fresh meat or fish. But, first and foremost, eat these cauli steaks with a glass of Clos de Gat Chardonnay.

Roasted Quail Wrapped in Prosciutto

The classic gamey flavours of quail combined with salty ham call for a rich, decadent, rich white wine with a liberal dash of oak. A full bodied Chardonnay will do the trick.
